Clara Smith - Don't Advertise Your Man


Published April 23, 1924
Topics Music, Blues, Vocal, 78rpm


Clara Smith was a part of the great migration from the south, moving from her home in South Carolina to Harlem in the early 1920s, where she became a popular blues singer. She actively recorded throughout the 1920s, including this performance of "Don't Advertise Your Man" on April 23, 1924. There is an uncredited (and very minimal) piano and ukelele accompaniment. From the original 78 rpm disk.

Clara Smith was one of the most popular and best selling artists of the 1920s. She toured the ethnic theater circuits of the TOBA(theater owners booking agency) very extensively but her main forte were the speakeasies, nightclubs and cellar establishments where her risque brand of blues and jazz went over big with home-folk and blue-bloods the same. She was also one of the most well paid and fashionable entertainers of the period. Her voice has been quoted as having the ability to tear the blood from ones heart. This is one of my favorite records of hers. Porter Grainger on piano and Sterling Conaway on ukulele.
